The Grand County High School softball team, which ended up tied with Richfield for second place in the Region 15 standings, will go into this week’s state playoffs as a No. 2 seed.

  Grand and Richfield both finished the regular season with 4-4 region records, but the Lady Devils won a coin toss between the two schools last week. Grand is scheduled to open the state 2A tournament against American Leadership Academy, the No. 3 seed from Region 16. That opening game is scheduled for noon on Thursday, May 9, at the Spanish Fork Complex.

  “I don’t really know much about [ALA] other than they are third in their region. I haven’t even seen them this year,” said GCHS head coach Stephanie Cluff.

The ALA Lady Eagles also finished with a regular-season record of 4-4.

  The winner of the Grand vs. ALA contest will play again Thursday at 6 p.m. on the same field, against the winner of Enterprise vs. Duchesne. The loser of the Grand-ALA game will play the loser of Enterprise vs. Duchesne at 4 p.m.

  The No. 1 seed from Region 15, the San Juan Lady Broncos, finished their regular season 8-0 and will face No. 4 seed North Sevier in the first round, also at noon on Thursday.

  The 16-team double elimination tournament continues until Saturday, May 11. All tournament games are scheduled to be played at the four-field complex, located at 295 West Volunteer Drive in Spanish Fork.
